The true Knick fans have been calling (on the message boards) for Lin, Novak, Balkman, and Jerome Jordan to get legitimate minutes from this reactionary coaching staff for months now. Yes, we feel gratified by the recent showing by Lin and Novak when D'Antoni was forced by events to change. But he still is slow to react and make in-game adjustments. Witness the Utah game, when Chandler gets in foul trouble and Jeffries almost fouls out trying to guard Jefferson in the paint. Bring in Jerome Jordan, scoring in the paint ceases, and the Knicks win. Does D'Antoni acknowledge Jordan's critical contribution to the win? No.
